“Mimbre truly is a class sited in the local community here in Hackney. There is a tiered system of class prices, meaning that no-one is excluded based on lack of income. There are also none of the requirements of other classes to buy uniforms/ special shoes, and this contributes to making the class more accessible.” – Parent Mimbre Youth
Mimbre is a charity and we depend on supporters like you. Help us keep our exceptional youth programme running and inspire people of all ages with their achievements. Any gift you give will make a valuable contribution.
Mimbre Youth Programme runs weekly acrobatics and dance classes, building confidence, creating friendships and improving well-being among young people in Hackney. We teach nearly 50 young people every week and centre inclusion, diversity and representation to make sure that every child who wants to take part has a chance to join in.
Our ethos is to support all young people to be physical, enjoy using their bodies and make friends out of school. We believe in encouraging everyone to achieve more than they thought they could, and we love to see the pride and exhilaration when young people learn a new move!

“I’ve observed that in Mimbre sessions there is a strong ethos of positive encouragement, nurturing, and acceptance of all kids. There is no pressure, no atmosphere of competition, zero emphasis on appearance, no gender specific expectations, and no hierarchy of ability. All of which brings out the very best in the children and young people attending the sessions.” Parent Mimbre Youth

“What I love about Mimbre is you can learn new things and you can be teached to not give up. You learn more acrobatics, like cartwheel or a bridge, you can learn it here!” Mimbre Youth Participant
